|Various - poems4songs - Happy Puppy Records|
Back in 2006, Tony "Phoneyfresh" Vosik created poems4song.blogspot.com with the intention of creating new 'song-poems' based on lyrics he was sent. A little over 10 songs were created over the following months, including submissions from Otis Fodder and Trademark G of Evolution Control Committee. Sadly, the files were deleted over time from the free filesharing sites, and Tony had a computer crash, losing all his originals...
|Fudge - Dictionaraoke - Happy Puppy Records|
10 years ago, the Dictionaraoke.org site launched, created by the Snuggles Online collective, where people would take midi-versions of songs and create a 'vocal' for them by using the recorded words provided by online dictionaries (more about how it works here). The project stalled around 2005, and while the website is still there, the files are not. Fudge contributed a version of the Manilow classic "Copacabana", which we are proud to have available online again in greater quality.....

|Bessemerr - Fields [hpr032] - Happy Puppy Records|
Fields is the third album released by the Italian one-man-act Bessemerr. Under the shell of noisy electro-dub and electro-acoustic suggestions,the entire work is inspired by the futurist artist Ardengo Soffici: like his poetry, Fields tries to re-create the junction between the profound empathy with the homeland (Tuscany: the same for both) and the impulse to dynamism, a typical futurist feature.
|Cagey House - Pedal and Boom - Happy Puppy Records|
Happy Puppy is happy to welcome Cagey House (Dave Keifer) to the label with his personal brand of modern classical, experimental and avant-garde music. Dave Keifer has been releasing music as Cagey House since 2005. As he describes it: "The early releases were fairly traditional instrumentals in a “the Ventures play Sun Ra” style. Since then the music has become more free, frenetic, and raw. That said, this particular release is pretty quiet and melodic, with a general air of wistful, if som...
|Graffiti Mechanism - Silver Lining [hprs003] - Happy Puppy Records|
A subtle and soothing single, a warm sound that envelopes you and leaves you wanting more.
|Unthunk - Big Boots (single) - Happy Puppy Records|
This debut single release from the group known as Unthunk might appear to be nothing more than a strange odd ditty on first listen. However, further listens (especially to the b-side "Spiny Urchin") reveal an uncharacteristic and deceptively complex creation. There is an intent and purpose being every sound, even if it sounds a bit goofy. Either way, we believe this release will turn into a quiet cult classic...
|King For A Day - fan tribute to XTC Volume 3 - Happy Puppy Records|
The third volume in a series of fan-recorded covers of the music of XTC, originally sent to members of the XTC fan club on cassette. Produced and compiled by Richard Pedretti-Allen for the Chalkhills digest (1996-2001). The CD-R of all 130+ covers is available from Richard for a small fee

|Pushing Task - Barbershop [hpr042] - Happy Puppy Records|
Normally, I'm not much into the noise genre but occasionally things happen in the world that make it neccessary, hence this 28 minute excursion into the noisy realm thanks to Pushing Task. PT has a number of releases on other netlabels, and this is his first on Happy Puppy. The music... well, the best way to describe it is what Metal Machine Music would sound like if it consisted of power-sawwing into a bagpipe full of squeaky dolls with a dentist drill...
|Unthunk - The Anechoic Experience - Happy Puppy Records|
After releasing two singles on Happy Puppy, the time has come for the full-length offering The Anechoic Experience from the band Unthunk.Essentially the work of Trevor Tunnacliffe, he is joined by a host of friends on this collection of dense and complex compositions including Maria Alejandra Velásquez-Sossa, David Sossa Fernández and jazz drummer Buff Allen. It's quite unlike anything we've ever released, and has a unique serious classical-style about it, but also with a slight wink.As Trevor...

|Peter DiPhillips - The Great Famine - Happy Puppy Records|
We've released two of Peter's album on Happy Puppy in the past, and now this third release from him literally goes further back into the past. Musical influenced by Peter's Irish ancestry, The Great Famine is a dark and serious concept album focusing on the period of 1845-1849 in Ireland, where "the indisputable fact that huge quantities of food were exported from Ireland to England throughout the period when the people of Ireland were dying of starvation."

Since then, she formed a trio and released her first EP called Turn, one of the tracks featured here "Go On" won a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Song 2009-2010.
|Cagey House - Medicine Hats - Happy Puppy Records|
When Dave Keifer of Cagey House sent me this EP for release, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. It's quite different from his last release on Happy Puppy - for lack of a better description, it's experimental but still very accessible. It was only until I quizzed Dave about what I was hearing did he give me some background on how the songs were composed. I don't want to give away any secrets (you can ask him if you want) but rather you just listen and enjoy the unpredictable pretty nature of...

For this Halloween, we're pleased to present a new original score by Lee Rosevere written for the 1928 silent public domain film "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Melville Webber and J.S. Watson Jr, based on the poem by Edgar Allan Poe. This early and fine example of avant-garde cinema is a visually-rich film, and offers many possibilities and challenges when it comes to the music, especially since it doesn't follow conventional storytelling techniques...
|Peter DiPhillips - Midnight Sun - Happy Puppy Records|
We're very pleased here at Happy Puppy to announce a new album by instrumentalist Peter DiPhillips. This is Peter's second album on the label, after releasing Omphalos last year. Midnight Sun continues Peter's atmospheric and enveloping ambient music, with subtle dark moments that certainly take their time unfolding, with five pieces that run a little over an hour. We really can't say it better than Michael Diamond, quoted "Peter creates electronic soundscapes from minimalist and meditative to...
|Jared C. Balogh - Between Equinox - Happy Puppy Records|
Happy Puppy is pleased to present another collection of humanly-impossible-to-play compositions by the prolific Jared C. Balogh. These cerebral but very musical songs fits right in with his Rhythms of Life album, previously also released on Happy Puppy, continuing his synclavier-esque modern classical material. This new album features some of his earliest works; "Break In The Action" is listed in the song notes as being recorded in early June, while "Quick Steppin' Q" goes back nearly three year...

|Scrap Heap - Outset [hpr028] - Happy Puppy Records|
Scrap Heap makes his debut on Happy Puppy with the experimental noise EP Outset. Scott Graue, the man behind Scrap Heap, is also a fellow netlabeler and propriator of Oceanbase label. Unlike a lot of noise music produced, Scott's approach to taking a single solitary sample and stretching, expanding and morphing it beyond it's original form, is intelligent and dynamic. Using distortion and tones as percussion, the sound constantly moves and keeps you guessing and interested in what will happen ne...

Logan Whitehurst began uploading his original songs to mp3.com back in 1997, and gained a strong online following for his music. Regularly played on Dr. Demento and often compared to the likes of They Might Be Giants, Logan sadly passed away from a brain tumour at the age of 29. Happy Puppy Records is proud to present this sampler of Logan's music, culled from his many albums. If you enjoy the music, we highly encourage you to visit his websites and download the free music, and buy the albums fo...

Originally a privately-pressed vinyl record, Namoon is an ambient and minimalist sonic treat composed of two long songs, split up into movements. Recorded in his basement studio with home-made equipment, Max created the music during late-night sessions inspired by his heroes Jon Appleton, Tangerine Dream, Silver Apples, early Kraftwerk and White Noise from 1970-72...

The Cosmopolitans were legendary on the Winnipeg public access scene from the mid 1980s for over 20 years.

|The Wonderful and the Obscure Vol 1: Rodd Keith - Happy Puppy Records|
This compilation of song-poems by the great Rodd Keith is from the private collection of Bob Purse, music-lover and music-maker (see "The Many Moods of Bob Purse"). I’ve been a fan of Rodd’s a little over 15 years, when I first heard the MSR Madness CDs, and started collecting whatever song-poems I could. In Canada, there aren’t a lot of them to be found.. I imagine they are much more common in the USA (given the nature of many of the poets were from the States, this isn’t surprising)...
|c4 - verbatim [hpr017] - Happy Puppy Records|

|Bob Purse - The Many Moods of Bob - Happy Puppy Records|
I love collecting song-poems (song-poem you say? read more about them here), as does Bob Purse. Not just song-poems, but Bob is a music collector of the strange, the odd, the outside. And not only has he collected for years, he shares a lot of it on the infamous WFMU Beware The Blog, as well as his own blog. On the occasion of his 50th birthday, he posted some of his original material on his blog that he had recorded privately over the years...

Happy Puppy is proud to announce a new group to the roster: Scarm. This Russian-based band dropped this album on us out of the blue, and it's quite interesting. A curious blend of atmospheric guitars and drums with a experimental and improvisational edge, emotional, darkly melodic noise ambient. This could easily appear on a soundtrack to an underground indie film, but also stands completely on its own...

Presenting a debut release by Peter Di Phillips for Happy Puppy: Omphalos. Peter, who also goes by the name slowdazzzle, creates dark and spacey electronic soundscapes highlighted with minimal but effective melodies... definitely of interest for fans of atmospheric soundtracks. Many highlights, but we particularly enjoy the synthy-calm "Tranquillamente" trilogy at the end, which pretty much sounds like what its title implies...
